Regional Councils

Created in 2015, the Smithsonian Regional Council program consists of over 200 active donors, advisory board members, and supporters of the Smithsonian’s mission. Located in 10 cities across the nation, Regional Council members strengthen the Smithsonian’s presence regionally, connect volunteers more effectively nationally, and inspire increased support for the institution.
